Yniq and Lindsey Vonn announce the arrival of the LV82 limited edition premier goggle. This new release of Yniq goggles is limited to 82 pieces, each one symbolizing one of Vonn’s record-breaking wins. Available online, the Lindsey Vonn limited edition within the Model Nine line, features rose gold hardware and a silver mirror lens, designed by Vonn, a team of Swedish engineers and handmade in Italy. Each goggle comes laser-etched with its unique number, 1 – 82.
The special Model Nine series is the most advanced Yniq goggle model to date. Equipped with Yniq’s Magnetic Dynamic Lens Technology (MDLT), allowing the wearer to adjust to changing light conditions by swapping lenses faster than ever.
“Fashion and function have always been important to me on and off of the slopes. I’m excited to be a part of Yniq’s creative and forward-thinking team in their unparalleled ski accessory,” said Vonn. “Their passion for quality, innovation, and style naturally align with my vision of what luxury high-performance eyewear should be.”Lindsey Vonn
All Yniq goggles feature the patented and ISPO award-winning peripheral vision technology, providing the widest peripheral vision capability of any snow goggle currently on the market.
The extra wide strap is coated on the inside with silicone to keep the goggles from slipping. The ‘Self Supporting Modular Outriggers’ are crafted from stainless steel in an intricate shape achieved through metal powder injection molding. Pins and screws are CNC turned stainless steel. The uniquely flexible and temperature stable frame is made of BASF Elastollan S85A.
Yniq has a winning combination of a world-class athlete and businesswoman at the brand’s helm, in addition to high-performance products offering a best-in-class skiers’ experience. “We are proud to have the ‘Number One’ in the sport joining our group of owners, says Yniq Founder Mikael Kenson. “In a world defined by mass production, Yniq stands for a relentless aim for perfection, functionality, and handcrafted quality and Lindsey is an outstanding champion with a dedication and passion for the sport and an impeccable style that is a complete match with ours.”
Yniq was awarded the prestigious ISPO awards in Munich for its peripheral vision technology, an invention that provides the broadest vision available on the ski goggle market. Combined with its outstanding design and quality, the brand has claimed a unique position in the market for next-generation alpine eyewear.
Following one of the greatest ski racing careers ever and retirement from the World Cup circuit in 2019, Vonn has been working on a number of adventures, including Yniq Eyewear; The Lindsey Vonn Foundation (providing future generations the tools they need to pursue their passion, overcome obstacles, and reach their goals through scholarships, programs, and mentorship); and her own production company, Après Productions, which is currently working on a documentary about Picabo Street for the Olympic Channel.
As disappointing it would be to miss out on purchasing these goggles, for yourself or someone you love, Yniq offers a variety of Goggles we have taken for a serious test drive. Their performance has been exceptional in snowstorms, sunny days, and pesky flat light outings. The addition of wearing a mask has added an additional challenge to the performance of the goggles, as fogging can be a serious threat to your vision. Peripheral vision impediments can also be a huge issue, especially during our days of mask-wearing. I have had a clear view of our ski area stairs and high alpine treks every day that I have gone out.
There is spectacular engineering on the inside and a lot of pretty on the exterior of this fabulous goggle and eyewear brand. Yniq offers a variety of goggle models and there are many styles for men as well. Head to their website.
